Kudos to Jim Gray, Laura Mashburn and Brenda Garvon- they helped me to get the Museum ready for the rededication and the Monster Fish exhibit before June 16th. Without their help there’s no way everything would have gotten finished on time. With the custodial department being short staffed it is great to see how we can work together to accomplish things.
Kudos to Cathy McCall for organizing the many office and storage moves in preparation for the West Hall Renovation. Thanks also to all of the people who were relocated. Everyone worked together with respect and a sense of humor making moving a lot easier.
Kudos to Jenny Barnes for helping to cover Central Scheduling while acclimating to her new job in Aviation. Jenny is wearing many hats at this time and doing it with grace and ease. Thank you.
A reminder to managers of student employees. MPSERS mandates that any student taking less than 6 credits in the summer, and less than 12 credits in fall and spring be enrolled in the retirement plan. NMC uses the official enrollment date from the academic calendar to determine credit load for student employees, and no changes are made for the rest of the semester. A re-evaluation of their credit load is done every semester, with appropriate placement in, or out, of MPSERS occurs. Please reach out to Hollie DeWalt in HR if you have any specific questions.
Outdoor Yoga with Instructor Stephanie Prall July 16, 2018 at 12 p.m. on Main Campus outside of Founders Hall.This 20 minute yoga class will be appropriate for all levels of mastery. We encourage you to wear clothes that are allow for bending and stretching, however, full athletic attire is not required. The intent is to provide everyone an opportunity to enjoy the summer weather and wake up your body.
Why try yoga? Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. It’s been around for more than 5,000 years. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It’s a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. There are more than 100 different forms of yoga. Some are fast-paced and intense. Others are gentle and relaxing.
Founders Hall 110 will be our alternate location in the event of rain.
